Clariant has acquired KiON Corp., a Huntington Valley, Pa.-based firm that Clariant says is the world's only cost-competitive supplier of polysilazane resins and composites. Additionally, to expand polysilazane capacity, Clariant has purchased Chemtreat Composites India.

Clariant says the acquisitions complement the product portfolio it established by working with the ceramic polymers company Starfire Systems.
